"A compelling programme based principally around the figure of Georges Enescu, both as composer and as a performing phenomenon, the latter probably inspiring Ravel's Violin Sonata of 1897, a lavish essay redolent of romantic early Debussy. Both Ravel pieces respond handsomely to Leonidas Kavakos's agile and refined approach, "Tzigane" in particular being meticulously prepared, the partnership with Péter Nagy ensuring clarity in matters of articulation and the "pick-up" of motives between violin and piano. Indeed I don't thing I've ever heard a more supportive or more sensitively gauged account of the piano part.
These are not showy performances. For although Kavakos is audibly appreciative of the folk flavouring in Enescu's Third Sonata, he treats the abstract element as paramount, suggesting keen parallels with the violin sonatas of Bartók. Again Nagy takes the greatest care over such issues as rhythm, texture and the shape of individual phrases: his precise musical thinking could serve as an object lesson in such matters. ... The graphic "Impressions d'enfance", with its lullaby, caged bird and cuckoo-clock, chirping cricket and ecstatic dawn, is endlessly fascinating, again rich in folk references, the sort that Enescu worked in to his "Romainian Rhapsodies". ... These new performances justify consideration for their warmth, intelligence and superb sound, not to mention ECM's (or maybe Kavakos's) imaginative programming."

ECM debut for the brilliant Greek violinist Leonidas Kavakos, widely regarded as one of the most gifted musicians of his generation and increasingly sought-after as a recitalist and soloist. He is joined in this fascinating recording - exploring musical-historical connections between Maurice Ravel and George Enescu - by the exceptional Hungarian pianist Péter Nagy. The half-Swiss, half-Basque, French-educated Ravel (1875-1937) and the Romanian Enescu (1881-1955) were classmates at the Paris Conservatoire in the 1890s, studying composition with Fauré. Here, Ravel's "Sonate Posthume" and "Tzigane", with its gypsy flourishes, frame Enescu's "Impressions d'enfance" and Third Sonata and make a strong case for urgent reinvestigation of this composer. Ravel needs no special pleading, but Enescu is too often overlooked. The Enescu revival starts here!
